That's Right, Cause It's My Birthday

Well today is not just an ordinary day. Today is MY day. That is right! It's all about me. And I'm darn proud of that.
Ah yes, another year older... another year that has past. I feel like I'm getting old. I feel like I'm starting to look old (yuck). I need to remind myself I'm going to be 19 again.. over and over and over. How many times can one turn 19? LOL Well, 19 has been a while for me. But that's ok. I can still pretend, right?
No I'm not I am not. Though....nope. I still am not.

So this is actually how I feel today:

Ok, so maybe I won't be doing all those things. Birthdays are not what they used to be. My husband doesn't celebrate birthdays {it is against his religion} and so there isn't anything special done for me around here. No going out, no presents, no Happy Birthday {except for my mom and everyone who Facebook reminded}. But you know, I'm getting used to it. Maybe one day there will be a small celebration. But until then, I just party in my head and tell myself how awesome I am because IT"S MY BIRTHDAY!!! Party Like A Rockstar.

Since there isn't any celebration plans for me, I decided to do my birthday manicure. This time though, I went really simple. So much chaos and stress has happened in the last few weeks, I needed something to remind myself it's time to just unwind, to relax, and just take a moment to breathe. So that is why I decided to do my nails very simple, yet fits with the tone.

I am wearing Julep's Aretha {March Birthstone Polish}. I love Julep's Birthstone Collection and was lucky to get the entire collection as a Christmas present this year. So I knew that for my birthday, I wanted to wear the March Birthstone Polish. It was named after Aretha Franklin.

So here is my simple birthday mani. And no, I didn't do any clean up work so the photos are what they are. Next time I'll do some clean up work to it but for now, I'm just going to leave as is.

So what are you wearing on your nails? Do you do something fun or fabulous for your nails on your birthday?

  2. Happy belated birthday! I don't think I ever manage to have my nails painted on my birthday. Might have to make a change since I'll be turning the big 3-0 this year.

  3. Thank you :) I have an unhealthy obsession with nail polish LOL... sometimes I paint my nails more than once in a day. I just am obsessed :) But the big 30...that's a big one! I just hit the 33 mark
